If deal were made between us how much would hunlee be paying for Encore pistol 7-08?Maybe 7-08 would be grate caliber for a long ranger.Maybe scrap hole idea of long ranger for Contender?maybe price of Encore for hunlee to think about?Interest very high rite now for encore

You have a lot more chamber possibilities with the Encore than the Contender. The 7-08 was the first XP I owned. great for deer and antelope.

redbone,

Are you buying it? I shot my short t/c (16.5 barrel) 7mm-08 today. What fun. I shot some factory ammo and it really did quite well at 100 yards. I will mess with a little more and then get some hand loaded. If you get it I think you too will like it.

How do you get barrle that 16.5 inch in 7-08?Maybe from custom company?hunlee thinking long barrel is good for long ranger.Do you feel speed is much higher with 16.5 over 15 inch?Rifle barrel give high speed over pistol but hunlee think they must be break out somewhere?But hunlee not no where that be?

Most custom TC barrel makers, allow yuo to choose options like barrel length. Longer barrels cost more money.
You can guesstimate about 40 fps per inch of barrel.
